I've got a big European photo expedition planned this summer, but I'm not worried about being in the elements 4,000 miles from home with my gear. It's the process of getting there with my equipment intact that always worries me. This great video offers some tips to ensure you not only get where you're going with everything in tow, but you also get the shots you want.
In this video, Peter McKinnon shares five tips for photo and video work when traveling. One of the most overlooked points is choosing the correct side of the plane to sit on. Using a tool like Flight Radar 24, you can see the exact route your flight will take and use it to grab the correct window seat. From there, you can then hop over to Seat Guru to figure out exactly where the best seat to take pictures from is. On another token, always pack spares of everything, especially memory cards and batteries. Lastly, be sure to check your airline's carry-on regulations; I don't know about you, but I absolutely refuse to check fragile photo gear.
